At-Home Spa Treatments

We could all use a luxurious, relaxing day at the spa. Unfortunately, schedules and budgets do not always allow for such a treat. Well, don’t despair. With a few inexpensive ingredients you can easily whip up products to rival those used in professional spa treatments. Go ahead, put the kids to bed and pamper yourself tonight!
Many natural products can be used as astringents, moisturizers and exfoliates.  Rose water is a great natural astringent. Pour two cups of boiling water over each one cup of rose petals. Cover and steep the mixture until cooled. Store your rose water in the fridge and use to liberally splash on your face to refresh and tighten skin.
Citrus contains acidic properties that soften skin and lighten dark spots. Rub lemon halves on your elbows, knees, heels or any spot that needs intense moisture. Allow the juice to seep into the skin to help fade away skin discoloration in these areas.
Scrubs that exfoliate and rejuvenate skin are among the most popular spa treatments. Treat yourself at home with an effective scrub that’s simple to make. Mix one cup each of brown sugar oatmeal and olive oil into a bowl or jar. Rub the mixture all over your body, working in slow circles to cover all of your skin. Then simply rinse off in the shower and enjoy your baby soft skin.
